This year, the one thing Lil Wayne dropped more noteworthy than his No Ceilings 3 project were his masters.
It was reported that, back in June, Wayne sold his masters to UMG for roughly $100 million. It’s now been reported (via part of a lawsuit against Wayne by his former manager Ronald Sweeney) that not only did he sign over his masters, but he signed over those of his Young Money releases as well including Drake’s (from Thank Me Later to Scorpion), Nicki Minaj’s (from Pink Friday to Queen), and Tyga’s (2012’s Careless World: Rise of the Last King and 2013’s Hotel California).
Regardless, Wayne — after dropping No Ceilings 3 (after throwing his political support in the direction of the presidential candidate that lost) — revealed that a
deluxe “B Side” of the mixtape will arrive shortly after. That project has been released today (Dec. 18). This drop features his takes on songs from Jack Harlow, BRS Kash (“Throat Baby” would have been one of the wildest things to come out in 2020… if 2020 wasn’t 2020), SZA, and others. The likes of Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Rich The Kid, Lil Twist, and Euro make appearances throughout.
The mixtape can be copped at Wayne’s e-home now.
